Armed Forces Tribunal

Armed Forces Tribunal or AFT is a military tribunal in India. It was established under the Armed Forces Tribunal Act, 2007.[1][2][3]

In 1999, the Law Commission's 169th report stated that disciplinary and service matters required quick resolutions and proposed a special tribunal for the military and paramilitary forces. Armed forces tribunal bill was steered through Parliament only by the Defence Ministry, leaving paramilitary forces, even the Assam Rifles and Coast Guard, outside the tribunal's purview.
